Wage theft is the systematic and deliberate underpayment of wages and entitlements to workers.
To combat wage theft in Western Australia, Private Sector Labour Relations has developed a range of initiatives including education campaigns and resources to increase the communities’ awareness of employment rights and obligations.
New information hubs help WA employers and employees:
- understand which industrial relations system covers them;
- find the right information on pay rates, leave entitlements and employment conditions;
- resolve an alleged underpayment of wages or leave entitlements; and
- report wage theft anonymously.
